not too windy but just up the road here we're here along highway 128 and on the way here we saw mudslides, smaller mudslides and downed trees so be careful out there. now right near chalk hill road here yesterday, huge boulders came didn't happen. chp had to call in extra help to remove the rock from the roadway. >> people needed to keep an eye out, drive slow, pay attention, because it can be around any curve, any of the roadways. >> reporter: here is another rock slide that happened along geyser road in geyserville. these rock slides occurring in the kincade burn area so with more rain on the way this week, there's concern about what more could come tumbling down and we just drove up the road here along highway 128, and we did see some equipment that's ready to remove future mudslides, so we decided to park down here a little ways, closer to chalk hill road just to be in a safe

early, drivers a lot of times you can't see the deep potholes or branches on the ground. watch out for that, we know it's been busy out there. getting you ready for the day, our first atmospheric river of the season, moving through the bay area, and of course brought in a lot of rain for some areas. now we can also see from this view that some of the heaviest rain shifted to the south of the bay. while we see this circulation here, that's the center of the low pressure, and the storm system, that will kind of help push this a little bit farther to the south, but it will also bring about some rain as we go especially this morning. so we're seeing some widespread light showers across the bay area, but a few areas that we're focusing in on, where we see the reds and yellows around st. helena and yountville, seeing heavy rain and also seeing some heavy rain once again coming over the santa cruz mountains, getting ready to move in to
saratoga, as well as los gatos, as well as cambria park so watch out for that. as we look back at how much rain this storm system brought, ben lomand in the santa cruz mountains getting nearly seven inches of rain and marin county in marin. this is typical of an atmospheric river. check out san jose, a little over a tenth of an inch of rain and the reason why is because atmospheric rivers are so low, as they moveocea and then start tf the higher some of our mountain a elevations along the coast, and and a half inches of rain, and morgan hill, where we had two redwood city an inch of rain. we're not done yet. we're still going to have a chance of scattered showers at least for the morning, but rain should taper off as we go into this afternoon. we see a lot of that rain mostly in the north bay, but then we see it just very hit or miss so be prepared for it all. we're going to see a little bit of a break headed into tomorrow, as the rain returns late
tomorrow evening, and it will move from south to north, and really impact the area on wednesday. but then we're also looking at some additional rainfall totals anywhere from about a tenth of an inch of rain to close to an inch of rain and the sierra should start to see snow showers tapering off io an additional one to tra. ahead of the next storm system that will be coming in, bringing so we're going to see this system moving to the south, and then still some scattered showers headed into thursday, that's the only see another storm system bringing in some high wind and rain for the first part of the weekend. seven-day forecast inland keeps it cool, highs upper 50s and low 60s and off and on rain now through wednesday. thursday a little bit of sunshine before that next storm system comes in. mike, you're seeing some tough driving conditions in a few
important spots. >> that's right. we have wet and windy conditions statered around the bay but critical here the bay bridge starting to show the backup for the cash lanes. it's 10 to 5:00 or 11 'til 5:00. i didn't want you to think you were late. about a half hour from now we should see the metering lights on. look at the flags perpendicular to the agdget the top here, san mateo bridge, they called off the wind advisory for the dumbarton bridge but be careful out there. this is a messy shot but i wanted to show you the radar activity that kari is tracking, that's our storm ranger showing you that data, and over here our maps, tak t show youw, i blends in with the note scott was talking about highway 87 some big puddles green bay. that's the usual suspect. we have some reported in the 280 interchange area and getting toward downtown san jose. keep that in mind if you usually see puddles you probably will this morning as well and highway 17 was a mess overnight, still a lot of rain.
there's a spin-out around redwood. they were going to shut down the freeway but able to clear that the last few minutes. that indicates how tough it is between santa cruz and the south bay. easy out u gu there. the chp talking more about the recent attacks targeting drivers. 101 meets highway 152 and 156 in the gilroy area. someone is either shooting or throwing projectiles at cars. four cars were hit on thanksgiving night alone, adding to the nearly 50 attacks in that same area since february. it's not really clear if all these cases are linked, but the sad truth is the chp now has a new name for that area, calling it projectile alley. >> they do match some of the previous incidents we have had, so we have a lot of resources dedicated to this. >> i have this on both sides of my kids because i'm too afraid to drive around. >> that's a driver who lives in

seattle owns the tiebreaker which jobs the niners from first place in the nfc to fifth and it means no home field advantage. don't worry, though, plenty of season left to play. could come down to the final game of the regular season between the 49ers and the seahawks. that is december 29th. warriors green going to spend tonight on the bench. he's dealing with a heel injury. he tried playing yesterday but went to the bench after only spending about half the game on the court. the warriors ended up losing to the magic last night. in other news, green will be back in his own modern michigan state tuesday when his college jersey will be retired. nice tribute for him there. 4:57. trending this morning, a california man truly has a home that stands out. >> the futuro home showing that off the renovated plastic prefabricated home. its ufo style was popular back in the late '60s when it was first built, has about 500 square feet, includes all the

all right, right now at 5:00, the story impacting everyone. rain still falling across the bay area, after weekend atmospheric river. nbc bay area storm ranger is fired up scanning those skies. >> all that rain, you know, it's got to go somewhere. we have crews across the bay area tracking some trouble spots for your morning commute. >> and of course a winter whiteout in the sierra. treacherous traveling but a good sign for our water year. kari is adding up the weekend snow totals.
